Over the past decade, Bob Holt’s been renting vacation properties at two of North Carolina’s premier tourist destinations: the beaches and the mountains.

Since 2007, he’s been teaching real estate courses at Southwestern Community College.

Now, he’s written the book.

Holt published “The NC Vacation Rental Act: Guidelines to Compliance” in August as a resource for agents and support staff. He’ll be teaching a course on that topic from 8 a.m.-noon on Friday, Oct. 25 at the SCC Macon Campus.

“For 20 years or more, I’ve been wanting to write about something,” said Holt, whose overall real estate career has spanned four decades and five states (Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina).
